We've combined an idea related to this thread!
I want us to bring the Arizona Challenger Space Center (which is looking for a new home) here in Mesa.
Placing the Arizona Challenger Space Center would bring people into our city. Parents and teachers would bring students to the center. While here to see the center, they will use the services of nearby restaurants and stores and stimulate our local economy. It will also help to upgrade our appeal to both educated people and young people with a science attraction. Additionally, bringing people into the city will expose them to a lot of the nice developments we already have to offer, especially in the west and Central Mesa--the MAC, the Planetarium at MCC, bike lanes and multiple use paths, the Asian shopping and dining corridor, etc. Simply getting people into the area will make them more likely to come back. And if you plan it well, the Challenger Space Center could be placed on one of the giant blighted lots in this town that now only serve as eyesores.
Here is a link to the article about them needing a new home. A couple of other cities are already being considered. Why not put our city into the running? www.arizonahighways.com/blog/a...
